As I went through some rough time in my personal life and, by consequence, spent a little while with no Internet access, I will report now and here the 3 games I completed during that time. Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
: I was pleasantly surprised by this game, I didn't think I would enjoy it so much. It's basically a remake of the traditional chinese myth of Sun Wu-Kong (which gave us Sangoku long after), mixed with some hardcore parkour ala Mirror's Edge. I won't say a thing about the story, that you can like or dislike (I liked it), but the action is well made (even if the combos are not so numerous) in a visually gorgeous environment. You want action? You'll get action! Big up to the team that worked so well on the facial expressions of the characters, it was really a big plus! The only "minus" point is the ending, far too quick and after which you're left wondering "and... ?". Still I can recommend that game. Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call (Nintendo 3DS)
: I have never been a fan of the FF series, and I only played the famous III/VI, but I'm a sucker for rhythm games. I had bought the first version on release, but sold it as soon as I saw that almost all the famous musics were sold as DLCs... The Curtain Call version is the GOTY version, with more than 200 songs to play with, and believe me, that's already a lot. It's a very nice game, that you "finish" (i.e. you see the credits rolling) after reaching 20.000 points, which took me around 12 hours, but you're far from having played all the songs in all the modes. Another very good game, that in fact pushed me to buy FF VII and FF VIII during these Steam Summer sales, just to see when the related songs were used... Dragon's Crown (PSVita)|
An instant classic among the Beat'em all. Got it for free in the Playstation Plus rewards program. This game is almost in itself worth the 50€ of the yearly subscription to that service! Of course, it's a little more difficult to clearly see the action than on PS3, because of the size of the screen, but I discovered that it wasn't really a problem for me. I finished it with the Wizard... to discover that I had only finished the "Normal" mode. So you can expect to play a long time, especially if you want all the trophies, since you'll have to play with all the 6 characters classes! Once again, an excellent game, that made me happy to have bought a Vita !
